Deep integration? Google might not be indexing your forum pages

    Hmmm. They say talking to oneself is one of the first signs of insanity…

    I just found a year old thread on this topic: http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/bbpress-wordpress-mu-or-not-leads-to-404-errors-but-pages-still-load?replies=7#post-14899

    So I have a couple of questions for anyone out there:

    1. Aside from the ugliness of a core hack, is there any reason my workaround is a bad idea?

    2. Has anyone produced a plugin that implements Beau’s idea in the thread above?

    Sounds like there are a lot of people with deep integration, so I find it really strange that this is still a problem in WPMU 2.8.4a / bbPress 1.0.2.

    Which pages are you getting the 404 header on? I just crawled my local copy quickly with firebug and was getting 200′s across the board. I’m probably missing a few of the pages though, I just loaded it up and started clicking away. :)

    All of them. Any bbPress page.

    What versions of bbPress and WPMU are you running? Do you have BuddyPress installed?

    ยต 2.8.4a and bbPress 1.0.2, no buddyPress, I’m afraid that bug has yet to bite me. Maybe that narrows down the cause though?

    And it definitely is *deep* integration, right?

    If so, how do you do the deep integration – are you calling ‘wp-blog-header.php’ from ‘bb-config.php’?

    It’s deep, I can access and use all my WordPress functionality. Afaik using wp-blog-header.php is deprecated for that use, I’ve been calling wp-load.php.

    delayedinsanity, you beauty. As far as I can see, this is the problem. I switched to using wp-load.php and the status in the header is 202 without my hack. What’s more, it corrects this issue:

    Many thanks.

    So to sum it up. I was previously doing the following in bb-config.php for deep integration:

    require_once('/var/www/vhosts/youlookfab.com/httpdocs/wp-blog-header.php');

    But it broke RSS feeds and put 404 headers in my forum pages. The following seems to solve both issues:

    require_once('/var/www/vhosts/youlookfab.com/httpdocs/wp-load.php');

    Resolved.

    Is there a way to fix this without switching the include to wp-load.php?

    I’m also running Buddypress and the “Buddybar for bbpress” plugin. Changing the include from wp-blog-header.php to wp-load.php seems to break the “My Account” menu in the admin bar. It seems that switching to wp-load.php makes the bbpress end unable to read $bp->bp_nav, which causes the “My Account” not to appear.

    I’m running WPMU 2.8.4a, Buddypress 1.0.3, and bbPress 1.0.2.
